CalSTRS contributes €150m to final closing of Harrison Street European Property Partners III
The California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) contributed €150 million ($156 million) to the final closing of Harrison Street European Property Partners III, which took place in February.
The fund raised more than €800 million ($832 million) of equity, including co-investment vehicles, from more than 25 institutional investors around the globe.
At the time of closing, Fund III was invested in a life-sciences portfolio of more than 2 million square feet, making Harrison Street one of the largest private real estate owners of life sciences assets in the United Kingdom. The fund is also invested in build-to-rent and student-accommodation assets in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Spain.
As of March 31, CalSTRS had a 14.24 percent allocation to real estate — representing $46 billion — against a target of 14 percent.
